These are skills I dream about having. I'm always brought crashing back to reality when I get on and try and do it myself!

I find it amazing that in some of the photos they are working with bare feet... being stuck at uni with no Commer/T25 = me searching for loads of info on repair help!

Having been to Thailand a few times now it's fairly common place to see Thais bare footed whilst working. One of the biggest things that i witnessed was the sheer wisdom that they have. They may be very poor in some parts of Thailand/Bangkok but they make up for it tenfold with what they know about life. They waste nothing and are very resourcefull. There was one restuaraunt/wooden shack that i frequented, and i got friendly with the owner. He asked if i'd like to go sea fishing with him...I jumped at the chance....He says, 'Meet me on the beach at 4.30am' Sling your hook i said...Met him down there at 6 being it was my holiday HAHAHA! Anyway, he was catching fish with a sharpened stick:eek: only ever seen that in films....!!! If you haven't ever been then go, it's a truly fab place - I plan on going back next year hopefully;)

We've discussed this on here before when these guys have been photographed restoring other buses, woolfy was wondering at one point whether it was worht filling and shipping a sea container to get a few vans fixed up at a price before he was doing them himself :)
